What Jennifer Lawrence role did Jessica Chastain have to turn down?

While doing the promo rounds for her Tammy Faye movie, Jessica Chastain revealed she was offered a role made famous by Jennifer Lawrence, but she had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts.

What was the role?
[Spoiler (click to open)]

"I love David O Russell, love, love, love, and I've always wanted to work with him. And I got offered American Hustle, the Jennifer Lawrence part. I wanted to do it. It conflicted with Liv Ullmann and Miss Julie."

She goes on to say that Jennifer Lawrence played the part better than she ever could have.

What do you think? Would you have liked to see her in the role? It certainly would have been more age appropriate.
